Daily Log for #alfresco

2020-03-23 07:13:53 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> I remember from memory @Loftux addressing something like that in their Alfresco Edition

2020-03-23 07:16:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Nope, nothing we have addressed.

2020-03-23 07:17:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Maybe something regarding versionning and properties then ?

2020-03-23 07:19:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Loftux> Properties are versioned as is as you probably know. I guess this use case is for keeping an association to a specific version?

2020-03-23 07:20:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I also remember a few years ago someone working on an addon to keep the properties of previous versions

2020-03-23 07:21:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> But I have no clue who it was or what's the status of that addon

2020-03-23 11:42:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I did this a couple of years ago, and manually you can do what you want with a versioned node, a bit of behaviors enable/disable and it works.

2020-03-23 11:46:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> hey guys

2020-03-23 11:46:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I was able to fix that

2020-03-23 11:47:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> the behaviour I described is the expected one, as described by axel in a thread

2020-03-23 11:47:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> my solution was to create a new version to be used as the "keeper" for the properties and associations

2020-03-23 11:47:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> and only after that, creating the new version with the new content

2020-03-23 11:48:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> the thread I am talking about is this one https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/alfresco-content-services-forum/version-history-does-not-include-property-updates/td-p/142372

2020-03-23 11:48:30 GMT <alfbot> Title:Solved: Version history does not include property updates - Alfresco Hub (at hub.alfresco.com)

2020-03-23 11:49:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> so, when I am about to create the new version containing the content update, before that I create a new version, freezing the properties and associations, and then create one more version with the content itself

2020-03-23 11:50:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> and for this "frozen" version, I create a version comment with something like "version created to keep the historical date for the review process"

2020-03-23 12:34:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> in the middle of corona and earthquakes in Zagreb, I found some time to write about my spring boot actuators for alfresco https://gradecak.com/2020/03/spring-boot-actuators-for-alfresco-content-services 😉

2020-03-23 12:34:08 GMT <alfbot> Title:Spring Boot Actuators for Alfresco Content Services - Alfresco and Java freelance consultant (at gradecak.com)

2020-03-23 12:35:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> after this "exercise" it became obvious, that a lot of spring boot could be used without harm inside of Alfresco

2020-03-23 12:40:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> guys, those the following message means this server is using multi-tenancy? "successfully retrieve data dictionary from alfresco. - for domain"

2020-03-23 12:41:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I am asking this because I see nothing by using the tenant console

2020-03-23 12:41:16 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> if I use the command to show the tenants, nothing is returned

2020-03-23 12:41:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> is there any other way to confirm that?

2020-03-23 12:43:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> This is the message for the default domain, which has the domain name of "" (empty string)

2020-03-23 12:43:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> ah, sorry

2020-03-23 12:43:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I have 2 different domains in the logs

2020-03-23 12:43:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> with an @ before it

2020-03-23 12:43:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I simply removed that part

2020-03-23 12:43:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> Those are real domains

2020-03-23 12:43:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> yes, they are

2020-03-23 12:44:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> So, you are saying those domains don't exist as tenants in the tenant console?

2020-03-23 12:44:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <AFaust> Weird. So yeah, in that case your server apears to be running in MT mode but your tenant console may be lying.

2020-03-23 12:45:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> yes, that is exactly what I thought

2020-03-23 12:46:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> we assumed this project, but nobody have any information on that

2020-03-23 12:46:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I have asked the customer about that, but his answer is "no, we are not using that"

2020-03-23 12:46:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> there is no documentation on the install

2020-03-23 12:46:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> I have migrated this from a local server into a remote server, but I have just found that message in the logs

2020-03-23 12:47:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> so, considering the tentant console is lying, is there any other workaround to use to confirm that?

2020-03-23 12:56:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <hi-ko> did you check db table alf_tenant?

2020-03-23 12:58:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> @hi-ko no, I haven't, and that is a good idea

2020-03-23 12:58:44 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> but I am, right now, assuming those tentant were created, but never used

2020-03-23 12:59:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> as the same domains are represented as sites inside alfresco, and that is what is being used

2020-03-23 12:59:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> this is how users are working

2020-03-23 13:00:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> @hi-ko # select * from alf_tenant; tenant_domain | version | enabled | tenant_name | content_root | db_url ---------------+---------+---------+-------------+--------------+-------- (0 rows)

2020-03-23 13:00:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> so, it seems the messages are lying 😄

2020-03-23 13:03:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> is this message shown by an alfresco logger or is it a custom message?

2020-03-23 13:05:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> asking this since it does not seem you did a copy paste of the message, so just to confirm

2020-03-23 13:45:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> @dgradecak alfresco logger

2020-03-23 13:45:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> yes, I typed it

2020-03-23 13:49:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> and the log keeps print more similar messages, for different domains

2020-03-23 13:49:58 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> it's the forth already today

2020-03-23 13:58:42 GMT <hi-ko> there is code asuming the '@' chatacter as hardcoded separator for tenant account, so if you use names like this it could create confusing messages and behavior

2020-03-23 15:38:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @Douglas Paes (douglascrp) is your instance exposed to the internet

2020-03-23 15:39:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> could it be someone trying to guess username/password with a username in the format user@domain.tld or maybe an authentic user mistakenly trying to use email instead of username ?

2020-03-23 15:47:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> > @Douglas Paes (douglascrp) is your instance exposed to the internet @yreg yes, It is

2020-03-23 15:48:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> > could it be someone trying to guess username/password with a username in the format user@domain.tld or maybe an authentic user mistakenly trying to use email instead of username ? @yreg those are valid domains for the actual users

2020-03-23 15:48:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Douglas Paes (douglascrp)> So I would think the second option
